I've been wanting to do a low oil pressure light or pressure gauge for a while now. Maybe an oil temp gauge too. It's always cool to have your dash full of gauges The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 8 1098998679 makes it look cool

FINNALLLY got a proper non slap-butt seat !

The 18hp Yard-Man Trailmower  - Page 8 20171210

i also installed some snow chains on the tires.. the traction is completely ridiculous.. i can go trought 2-3ft snowbanks easily..
the ''new'' MST transaxle is also showing signs of abuse.. i will probably have to pop it open soon to see whats going on...

also looking at 20x7-8 trail wolfs for the rear and 16inch snowhogs on the front


to do:

-front bumper W front towhooks
-headlights, nilights dual flood..
-buy and mount new rear tires
-rear mud flaps (got them just have to bolt them in)
-belly pan, keep the sticks out of my belt..
-building a small alternator out of a small electric motor !?
-steering stops
-axle supports
-change the batteries

I was going to suggest just welding it in when you posted that it broke the last time. I hear a lot of racers, off-roaders, and pullers end up welding their axle shafts directly to their gears thus eliminating keys and snaprings. Off road tractor guys should do it that way too.

yea the doc locker eliminates gars and snaprings but the weak link is the keystock that keep snapping.. its probably the 3rd time now. i tried with different keystock and same result, maybe too many clutch dumps lol! but hey its fun ! so yea welding it next time..

Yikes, really chewed up the axle. You've had bad luck with axle shafts and transaxles it seems. 18hp pressure lube opposed probably don't help that, hahaha.

I did the same thing on my doc locker 2.0 . So I switched to the first version and the locker held fine. Wish I could say the same about the tranny after drifting in snow too much.

The running boards on that remind me of the 1980's simplicity ones. Kind of a similar idea. Looks like a lot of work planned there, nice nice. And...HOOD RACK! Heck yeah, join the club!

Welp. Trying to get back to working on this take 2 !

ive sold the quad, the 2 project cars and ive gone back to basics somewhat. Im hoping to have enought time in the next 2-3 months to finish this thing before the next Gambler 500 so i can use it as a basecamp machine. Then again, its what i was saying in 2020.


the upside of taking 2 year to start working on this again is ive had ALOT of time to gather parts !

i have nearly everything needed to do the list below !

plans:
-dual carburator, PZ30 W/acc pump mounted with custom 3D Printed adaptors
-full repaint, original paint scheme
-new pulley swap, 9in front 5in rear
-hood rack maybe
-clean transmission, replace worn bushings/bearings, drill out factory self taps and replace with bolt and nut.
-Redo doc locker i bought some hardened keystock !!
-complete front end rebuild, new joints, spindle reinforcement, wheel bearing new bushings.
-transaxle brace
-Axle supports !!! i want to make it wider so i need to help that little mst205
-new tires, 19-7-8 rear sun F 15/70-6 front x tracs
-4bolt rear hubs
-steering stops
-nilight front headlights
-frame reinfocements i found some cracks around where the transaxle bolts to and where the fornt end is welded.
-front bumper
-new simplistic (lighter) rear bumper
-lowering the seat + add some storage somewhere, ammo can ?
-hydro rear brakes
-also debating engine mods, flywheel, rods and pistons ? rev it more than 4k safely ?


ive got nearly all the parts ready and will start wonrking on it very soon. Will make sure to upload pictures when the work starts.

Cool build man (I just read through the whole thread)! She's a MTD built unit I can tell by the original front axle, motor mounting plate and steering link, around the same year as my Warhorse! Really love what you've done/doing. The reinforcement to the front steering link is brilliant I may have to copy that (but give you due credit of course!). Best of luck, I'll be watching this one!

Alright! nothing like procrastinating for 2 months and rushing to get everything done during the last few weeks before an event!! lol!

So i redid my tie rod, its also tucked way higher so it doesn't get destroyed by rocks and debris again.
New brass bushings in the knuckles, wheel bearings instead of bushings, lock collars holding the wheels on instead of cotter pins. stearing is really nice and tight!

Watching… I had missed this thread before.

I REALLY like that subframe with outboard bearings. Neat stuff! I’ve always thought that should be what everyone does that runs a rig hard. Now to read and find out more about it. Is that a new addition? Will there be a cross brace added also? I need to study this.
